Valhalla Patrol (1959)

Here’s a seasonally-appropriate snowy adventure, filmed high in the West Kootenays!

In this clip from Valhalla Patrol, a 1959 BC Power Commission film, workers patrol an essential power line crossing the snow-covered mountains between Lower Arrow Lake and Slocan Lake. These excerpts show the crew traveling in a Sno-Cat over-snow vehicle from the 1,500-foot level to the 6,750-foot summit of the power line.
